In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080, but the GeForce RTX 2080 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1080. As a result, the GeForce RTX 2080 exhibits a 21.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 1080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce GTX 1080 has a 92 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 2080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 1080 providing 5.8 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 2080 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 1080, and so the GeForce RTX 2080 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 1080.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce RTX 2080 and the GeForce GTX 1080 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 127.7 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1080, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 1080.

The GeForce RTX 2080 has 2944 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is 5299 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1080 is 5989. The GeForce GTX 1080 having 690 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce RTX 2080 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 2080 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1080. This means that the GeForce RTX 2080 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1080.

The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 215 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2080 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1080. The GeForce RTX 2080 requires 35 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 2080 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1080.
